. in 2001, when president george w. bush decided to spend a large portion of the surpluses he inherited from president clinton to cut tax rates across the board, many democrats opposed it because the tax cuts were unfairly waited towards the highest-income americans. as a result of this opposition, republicans were forced to set the tax cuts to expire at the end of 2010. as 2010 drew to a close, president obama and many democrats in congress, including myself, supported extending the tax cuts for middle-class families but letting the lower rates on income above $200,000 for an individual and $250,000 for a family revert to the clinton-era levels, as was scheduled. senate republicans filibustered that effort, refusing to allow the middle class tax cut without a tax cut for america's wealthiest. not wanting tax rates to go up on middle-class families still struggling during the economy. the president and senate democrats reluctantly agreed to extend all of the tax cuts through this year. which brings us to now. once again these tax rates are set to expire. i would like to keep rates low for mi

is convening in washington this week and i -- usually beat up on this guy but i want to make a point. george w. bush did more for aids and relief in aids in africa than any president before or since and he and his wife recently went to africa to put their feet with their money was. a lot of people are alive because of what george bush did for aids and he's underappreciated. >> country superstar, troy cook jr., new song, lazy american dream. >> lazy american dream. anything worth having we should have it all f free ♪ ♪ the home of the made of in the land of the what about me ♪ ♪ >> anything worth having we should have it all for free. >> what was his -- oh, what's that mean? >> that's a good song. >> one more thing, something nice about bush. >> thank you. >> well, this is not so nice. you know that 200 and so years ago we kicked the british's butts, now they're offended. the olympics start this week so these people that are mad because the americans are coming over, spending hard-earned money to pump up the economy, this is the bag they decided to put together. it says, i rented my fla
legislations and republic senate. >> bill: there is truth to what you say. george w. bush spent like a wild man in his eight years in office and he did embrace the entitlement culture to some extent. but the whole philosophy of barack obama and the democratic party is that this is the just society going from 6% welfare to 35% in 50 years that's a good thing it's going to strengthen the country. >> i don't think anyone is saying that democrats would like to get more money into the economy. put money into people's pockets and spend the. >> bill: give it to me. >> not give it. moody's reported the economists, not a left wing publication that says for every dollar that's spent on food stamps, 1.72 comes into the economy. every dollar spent on unemployment -- 63 goes -- >> bill: i don't care about that because what the united states is doing right now to pay the food stamps and everything else is they are printing money. which, in the long run is going to erode. >> it's putting money back into the economy. >> it's putting bogus money back into the economy. >> also you mentioned jfk. >> you just avoi
of both parties, h.r. 4607, absolutely -- h.r. 4607 is absolutely long overdue. president george w. bush rushed excess amounts to close before he left. president obama will undoubtedly do the same. that's wrong. it's simply wrong. and we know it is and we know that often, as this bill says, these are regulations that aren't heard before the election and are concluded in those 75 days before departure. it's wrong, we know we need to stop it, we shouldn't abrogate our responsibility and the members on the other side will suddenly decide, i'm sure, this is a better idea should mitt romney be elected in the fall. this bill is supported by the chamber of commerce, association of builder andy contract -- builders and contractors, small business and entrepreneurs council, and the national federation of independent businesses. the fact is, this is about simply saying, not that we're going to stop 3,000 regulations, but that we're going to slow and evaluate more carefully the 66 largest of them by this administration last year. during debate the administration was essentially lauded for having pa
came to washington-- you write about it-- some years ago, and met president george w. bush for the first time. and did that live down to your expectations? >> he lived... well, he was someone i wouldn't have voted for. his policies were not mine. but we came from the kennedy center awards, which was incredible honor, being a british person, i was bestowed this honor. and my partner and i, david, came, and we were so pleasantly surprised by george bush and his knowledge of aids. david and i and laura were social. they were so friendly and so courteous. and he was passionate about aids, and we had a ten-minute talk at the interval of a concert at the kennedy center about aids, and i was astonished about well-informed he was and his commitment to aids. and so it's the typical thing of don't judge a book by its cover until you've read the book. >> ifill: you are here in washington at this international aids conference, and you are also meeting people here on capitol hill about what they can do and what they can continue to do. do you find that government intervention is in the
clinton handed president george w. bush a record surplus. so the only time in the last 30 years in which we actually had the budget in balance was after we raised taxes on those at the top, the very level we're talking about now. between 1993 and 2001, this country created an unprecedented number of jobs -- 22.7 million net -- and did so while benefiting everyone up and down the economic ladder. not every individual but every quartile. there was economic growth in every quartile. we witnessed a decrease in the number of americans in poverty and we saw the creations of more millionaires and billionaires than ever before. president clinton's deficit-reduction plan not only reduced the deficit as planned, it eliminated it entirely. so not only did we create all that prosperity, president clinton then handed off a record surplus. i think it needs to be said. he handed off a record surplus to incoming president george w. bush. in fact, when president bush took office, we were on track to completely pay off our national debt with $5 trillion of surpluses projected over the next ten years. in o
and clinton ad and point out even bush, george w. bush's ethics folks didn't have a problem with this. they think this is really just a distraction, it's not going to amount to anything. >> athena jones, live in washington, thank you very much. >> still on politics, celebrities are cutting a lot of checks in the race, more for the democrats but it's not all one sided. here's a list of celebrities that donated in may and june and include billy crystal, eddie murphy and morganfreeman with a $1 million donation. john rich, with $2500 and jerry bruk himer and wife with 25,000, scott baio, chachi and his wife with 12,000 and vince mcmahon with a $150,000 donation. >>> bp and drilling rig owner tra transocean failed to learn critical lessons before the deepwater horizon explosion in the gulf of mexico that is according to the chemical safety board, the two companies focused on reducing worker injuries rather than preventer disastrous well blowouts even though they vowed to implement new safety systems after 15 workers were killed in a refinery explosion in texas in 2005. >>> the water suppl
to the same policies of george w. bush. remember when george w. bush became president, we had surpluses as far as the eye could see. then he gave these tax breaks to the top 1%. and, by the way, this $160,000, that's the millionaire tax break. they want to give tax breaks to the multimillionaires, to the billionaires, to the multibillionaires. they put no cap on the tax cut whatsoever. you can earn $100 billion, they want to give you a tax break. and there's a cost. there's a cost to the treasury. there's a cost to the debt. there's a cost to the deficit. there's a cost to fairness. there is a cost to the middle class. so i think the american people have weighed in on this one, and they believe that to give a tax break to the first $250,000 of everybody's income is fair, because then the people above that can pay a little more, the same rates they paid when bill clinton was president, and we need to go back to those days when we created 23 million jobs and when we not only balanced the budget, but we created surpluses as far as the eye can see. the question is, madam president, who are you fig
